The project’s exterior is designed by Espen Oeino while Zuretti Interior Design is behind the internal design of the vessel’s guests areas which encompasses a total volume of 9,194 GT with a beam of 22 metres. Some of the stand-out features on board include a multi-level atrium with full-height windows and two helipads; the upper deck helipad finished with its own retractable helicopter hangar.
